by karl rove trying to come out to support more mainstream candidates against people like paul brown. but you can't spend four years where your only ideology is calling the president is socialist trying to convince the american people that he wants to take down the country with his socialist rhetoric and kill babies and take our guns. then the country didn't believe it, but their base bought into a lot of that. you can't spend four years doing that then turn around and say we don't want these candidates who's reflecting the ideology we have been promoting. they were happy to ride that wave when it was good for them in 2010 when there was a tea party wave and it brought them to power in the house. now we're seeing the backlash and those choices are creating a problem for them in the senate. they could have potentially taken the senate if they hadn't had candidates like todd akin, christine o'donnell. that's going to be the real fight for this year. are they going to continue nominating unelectable out there candidates or are they going to come back to a mainstream party? >> well, paul

complete dysfunction. the "new york times" reports that the karl rove-led american crossroads group, which spent over $170 million in 2012 to questionable results is setting up the conservative victory project, an organization with the goal of recruiting less extreme candidates. crossroad president steve law said "our approach will be to institutionalize the buckley rule. support the most conservative candidate who can win." an important caveat. the buckley rule has its opponents, namely adhere ens of the limbaugh rule. rush's 2010 counter edict that you vote for the most conservative republican in the primary, period. rush's rule was pronounced not surprisingly on the day of the christine o'donnell won her party's delaware primary where she would go on to be crushed in the general election and become the poster child for tea party folly and witches. still, word of rove's establishment maneuverings over the weekend immediately wrainkled many on the right who saw it as a distinct cave-in to dast adviserly moderates. any candidate who gets this group's support should be targeted for destruct

much worse than the democratic super pacs in the last election cycle. karl rove's american crossroads had a 1.29% return on investment, spending $104 million. compare it to the house majority pac's 70% success rate on $30 million. another democratic super pac, majority pac is what it was called, had an even higher success rate. democratic super pacs did better in the last election because basically, they had a better message, with policies people actually cared about. it seems to me the republican super pacs were all based on a power grab. they had more money. but the money is meant to protect those at the very top. the wealthy. it's power versus populism. and this time around i think we did pretty well. i guess we could say that the citizens united beat citizens united based on where people were. but president obama's remarks three years ago are so true to this day. >> last week the supreme court reversed a century of law that i believe will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections. >> to spend without limit in
